Re: Alessandro Giannessi: special from La Spezia
After making the QF in Bucharest after qualifying, Alessandro made the finals of Napoli the week after, defeating Ungur in the SF before losing to Mayer. In November, he made the SF of Montevideo and he finished 2011 ranked #135 in the world, with a 59-28 overall record.
Alessandro has a 5-6 record thus far in 2012, with his best results being qualifying in Acapulco beating Souza in the final round before losing to Starace. Been a little bit of a slow start but in his last event in Marrakech he gave Mathieu a very competitive match, showing the potential he does have as a player.
This upcoming week Alessandro is playing in Barletta, and faces Brown in R1. GL to Alessandro and hopefully he can start breaking out this season with a big run in Barletta!
